Engaging Concepts is responsible for an incredible series of luxury wedding business events called engage! – bringing together the wedding industry’s key influencers and thought leaders from around the globe to exchange ideas, network and be inspired to take their businesses to the next level of success.
Eight sold out events have taken place with stunning success since June 2008, bringing together a combined total of over 1000 luxury wedding professionals attending from 45 states and 20 countries including across the US, Canada and the Caribbean and countries such as Australia, the UK, Ireland, Turkey and Mexico. These luxury wedding business summits are designed for wedding industry professionals looking for new and innovative ideas for strategic growth.
Intimate by design, and limited to no more than 250 attendees and speakers each, engage! gathers many of the ‘best of the best’ in the wedding industry. engage! events seek to offer something not found in other conferences. Careful attention is paid to creating an intimate atmosphere of effortless networking in a non-client, non-competitive environment – allowing for an open exchange of ideas, information, inspiration and candid discussions of the issues, challenges and unique opportunities facing everyone in today’s luxury wedding industry.
We are often asked exactly who attends engage! events. The answer, quite simply, is just about every possible type of individual, company or brand that ‘engages’ with high-value brides and grooms! Unlike most other industry events that are singularly focused to a single segment of expertise, engage! offers an environment for like-minded, influential professionals who serve the luxury wedding industry, to connect and share ideas and challenges across platforms and regions in a non-competitive environment. Each event has included a broad cross-section of wedding planners & designers, top editors, bloggers & website professionals, 5-star hotels, resorts & venues, photographers & videographers, fashion designers, invitation designers & artists, entertainment professionals, bridal & related retailers, media – both editorial & publishing, bridal show producers, consumer products, decor & rentals, beauty professionals and the list goes on. The one element that every attendee has in common is that they all share the same client – just at different points in the wedding planning process.
